Next up is the cavalcade, I photographed it both times to get more character photos. The cavalcade featured the same characters and performers as the morning show.
Here is our video of one of the Grand Celebration Cavalcade parades! And then check out all the photos below it.
The Three Little Pigs and Merlin join Oswald in this shot.
Minnie arrives in her 25th special costume!
The seagulls from the Frozen dance segment with Olaf took a while to figure out (I wasn’t sure where they were from at first).

I’ve never seen the Big Hero 6 characters in person (except for Baymax and Hiro in face character form).
Chip and Dale both had hats with their names.
And at the end of the night was the “Kiss Goodnight”, with the twelve main characters saying goodnight for a half hour with the song “Everyday’s a Celebration” playing in a much slower tempo than earlier in the day. It’s a terrific song, fast or slow.
Here is our video of the “Kiss Goodnight”!
Duffy, Mickey and Minnie.

It was time to go, just a few minutes before the characters finished their goodbyes.
I was glad we were able to be there for the actual anniversary day, I’m not sure I’ll see anything like it again in my lifetime. It was a very special day!
